What I found was that the heartrate monitor for the Garmin Edge 305 is 
supposed to communicate over bluetooth. It's sold separate for about 50 Euro 
(about $40), so that could be viable solution.

However, I didn't manage to find out if it really could be paired with 
standard bluetooth equipment and what protocol is used. 

Anyone on this list with access to such a device who could check?
